    Question Confused!! MP3 music in Car!!!

    Hello!!

    I am new to car audio, using mp3,having done away with audio cassetes, and audio cd's, I will be installing a brand new pioneer DEH-P3600MPB, due to the colour match with my VW mark 4 golf turbo instrument panels.

    What I want to know, is that having put my mp3 music into seperate folders, on to cd via my computer, how will the stereo read it like that? Or will i need to put all the mp3 music in to 1 folder??


    Also what is mp3 tags?? Will it be beneficial to have tags??

    i put my music in seperate folders in order to find them quicker...if u put all the songs in one folder it will take long to skip to each song...also depends on how many songs u want to put on the cd

    Do you mean ID3 tags?

    ID3 tag lets you put details about the song in text along with the actual music. Some MP3 players can read and display ID3 tags whilst playing the song. You can record things like Song Title, Artist, Album Name etc.

    1) Check the specs on that particular hed unit. Some MP3-CD players will read from subfolders, some will not. Usually newer models have this capability.
    2) Again, check out the unit you're interested in. Some units will read ID3 tags, some will not. Usually newer models will have this capability. Frankly, I can't stand untagged MP3s, whether a player would read them or not. But that's just me.

    As an aside, the large colored font is annoying. You're also using fonts that not everyone has. For example, I don't have Garamond on my system, so this post showed up in dull Arial.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Yeah, when you put mp3's in folders on a cd....it browses like that on the stereo...it will automaticly play the first mp3 in the first folder and go from there...but you can skip folders.

    hallelujah, i can't ******* stand having badly tagged music either... i have a friend that has an iPod and no kidding he has like 2 or 3 entries for each artist in the artist window. my iPod is all organized and **** and that's how the music in my car is going to be also once i buy and install everything.

    http://www.id3-tagit.de/ <-- this program is free and you can use it to fix or add ID3v1 or ID3v2 tags to you mp3 files, hope you can figure it out :P
